BOISE - BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A federal judge has ordered the
U.S. Department of Energy to make available to the court
documents sought by former Idaho Gov. Cecil Andrus involving
nuclear waste shipments to eastern Idaho.

U.S. District Court Judge B. Lynn Winmill on Monday ordered the
agency to produce the documents within a week so Winmill can
determine whether to make them public.

Andrus filed a lawsuit in September after Energy Department
officials responded to Andrus' Freedom of Information Act
request with heavily redacted documents.

Andrus wants information on research shipments of spent nuclear
fuel to the Idaho National Laboratory that require a waiver to a
1995 agreement.

Andrus says the waiver would make the state a nuclear waste

Energy Department officials didn't immediately respond to
inquiries from The Associated Press on Tuesday.
